Assembly Line Quilting

I'm not sure if this is really a term used in quilting but I think it describes the technique perfectly and it really comes in handy when there are a lot of exactly the same or very similar blocks to make. In the video, I've got 16 of the same fpp blocks that I assembled using this method. I started by stitching all the green and white wedges together along their curve. Then I went to the foundation papers and glued the first red piece of fabric to all of them. Then I stitched a green and white wedge to all of them, then I pressed that seam on all of them.... you get the point.

This technique made the blocks really simple because I was so focused on only one step over and over again before moving on to the next step. It certainly reduces errors.

Turns out that chain piecing is not the only trick to making a lot of blocks fast! Assembly line quilting saves time!

I can’t wait to share the peppermint sweetness with you!!! Pattern releasing soon! Happy Quilting
